Unbelievable Encounter Part 16 of 16
I took my eye away from the camera and looked at the sky to see if the hawk was on the roof or a tree or circling in the air but the hawk had left the area. I looked back at the fence and there was the squirrel trotting down to where the hawk had been sitting. It jumped down in the front yard and ran up my pecan tree. It had successfully run the hawk off. Apparently I have some ballsy squirrels. The time stamp here is 4:53. On all my photos in my gallery you can look below right of a photo and see a small letter I in a circle and click on it and you get the camera exif which includes timestamps if you don't believe me. :) I'll probably never see something like this again, it was pretty awesome.
